Manchester, NH— The Bobby Stephen’s Fund for Education, a non-profit organization that assists disadvantaged students through scholarships and program development and those seeking financial aid for education, hosted the 39th Annual Bobby Stephen St. Patrick’s Day Celebration earlier this year, which raised $92,000.
The festive event hosted more than 600 attendees and featured a first-class buffet with a traditional St. Patrick's Day menu. Entertainment included Tom Bartlett and his Unicorn Band. Attendees had the opportunity to participate in a raffle and live auction with a variety of items.
“I am thrilled we can say that we are doing our part to help these young students, pursue further education and become productive members of the workforce,” said Bobby Stephen. “Contributions are the lifeblood of our organization and allow us to provide young people with the opportunity to reach their full potential while becoming skilled members of the workforce.
All proceeds benefit The Bobby Stephen’s Fund for Education and Easterseals New Hampshire Youth Transitional Services. The goal of Easterseals Youth Transitional Services is to help students in obtaining the skills they need to be successful in adult life focusing on career exploration, building employment skills, adult daily living skills, social health and wellness, continuing education and accessing adult services.
